Bill Donohue Vs Andrew Sullivan

Catholic League blowhard Bill Donohue is predictably angry about Andrew Sullivan’s Newsweek cover story. The Jesus that Sullivan has created—“calm, loving, accepting,” and, of course, “homeless”—is what happens when “Occupy Wall Street” becomes mistaken for Catholicism. Worse, Sullivan’s “Etch A Sketch” Jesus accounts for his remarkable conclusion that “the cross was not the point” of Jesus’ life. Sullivan’s article reads …

Fox Blurs Out Andrew Sullivan’s Name

Fox News is so pissed about Newsweek’s “Why Are Obama’s Critics So Dumb?” cover, they blurred out Andrew Sullivan’s name under the title. Sully had nothing to do with the title and in fact never makes a “dumb” claim in his article. But Tina Brown’s gotta sell magazines.

Quote Of The Day – Andrew Sullivan

“Under Obama, support for marriage equality and marijuana legalization has crested to record levels. Under Obama, a crucial state, New York, made marriage equality for gays an irreversible fact of American life. Gays now openly serve in the military, and the Defense of Marriage Act is dying in the courts, undefended by the Obama Justice Department. Vast government money has …

NOW Denounces Newsweek

The National Organization of Women has come to the defense of Michele Bachmann. NOW, an organization that has received some criticism for its deafening silence when prominent conservative women like former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin are lampooned in the national press, has come out strongly against the depiction of Rep. Bachmann as the “Queen of Rage.” “Who has ever called …

Debate Rages On Newsweek’s Bachmann Cover: Did They Do It On Purpose?

The best line from Mediaite’s story on the controversy: “Newsweek subscribers, upon receiving this issue, will probably scratch their heads trying to remember when they signed up for a trial subscription to It Puts The Lotion In The Basket Weekly.”

HomoQuotable – Andrew Sullivan

“For a long time, gays and lesbians braver than I was were effectively married and lived together, risking violence and opprobrium and isolation. For decades these bonds existed, and we knew of them even if we never spoke of them. I saw them up close as a young man in the darkest years of the AIDS plague. I saw spouses …

Citizenship Test

Newsweek gave a thousand Americans the same citizenship test given to immigrants and 38% failed. USA! USA! They’re the sort of scores that drive high-school history teachers to drink. When NEWSWEEK recently asked 1,000 U.S. citizens to take America’s official citizenship test, 29 percent couldn’t name the vice president. Seventy-three percent couldn’t correctly say why we fought the Cold War. …

HomoQuotable – Andrew Sullivan

“The chance to be part of a whole new experiment in online and print journalism, in the Daily Beast and Newsweek adventure, is just too fascinating and exciting a challenge to pass up. And to work with media legends, Barry Diller and Tina Brown, and with the extraordinary businessmen Sidney Harman and Stephen Colvin, is the opportunity of a lifetime.” …

Newsweek Profiles Brian Brown

Saying he would “make a good politician” and calling him “extremely polished,” Newsweek has published a glowing puff piece on NOM’s Brian Brown which opens with a description of the hate mail Brown says he’s received. Brian Brown’s hate mail is divided into two categories: messages that go straight to the police and those he dumps into a growing computer …

The Washington Post has sold Newsweek to electronics billionaire Sidney Harman for $1 in return for his pledge to assume the struggling title’s liabilities and retain most of its staff. Newsweek has struggled through the recession more than most weekly news magazines, losing nearly $30 million last year alone. It was earning that much a year as recently as 2007. …

HomoQuotable – Alan Cumming

“It is my contention that Ramin Seetodeh is not happy with himself. He has particular shame about being gay. He sees gayness, particularly open and unabashed gayness, or effeminacy, as a reminder of what he does not like about himself. And so he attacks it. His own shame translates into his paralysis when thinking of others who might have his …
